. as we all know how it's going to end with the debt ceiling being raised, no real big agreement on spending and taxes, all that's left is a week of political posturing. what would happen politically if no deal was reached and the u.s. did default? would voters blame the president or the economy and republicans? the answer to do could determine who wins the 2012 election. also, the videotape, michele bachmann's husband denying he referred to gas as barbarians despite the tape that indicates differently. we have a full unedited tape on that. that tops our 2012 coverage tonight. >>> the drip of the rupert murdoch scandal continues. first rebeck ka brooks the head of his newspaper operations resigned. then late this afternoon we learn that the ceo of here is stepping down. can murdoch stop the scandal from completing overwhelming his empire. and finally cue mar and in harold and cue mar leaving the white house for a reoccurring role in "how i met your mother." that's in the side show. tonight's question, who's holding up the agreement? congressman chris van hollen is a democratic fr

known and they talk about it a lot in the market, and is it getting big r bigger. >> the last time we heard about it is when he bought the "wall street journal," and they said that buying into the troubled newspaper sector is a bad idea and now newspapers like "news of the world" are shuttered and parts of the business and analysts love fox news and fox network and bskyb who he wants to own the rest of it which is off of the table now because of to scandal, but if they can concentrate on the high performing assets, they are okay in the long run. news corp is not going to allow the company to be hurt in the long run, but the newspaper division, clearly wounded. >> and they could have problems going forward, because yahoo!'s daniel gross did an interesting column on this and he said that the hit to the credibility will create a different freedom for working there and harder for places that the murdoch companies own to hire good journlgists, because to get them to come over after this is that you will have to pay them extra, and more to sort of deal with the reputational problems of the

if some big player decides to sell off. >> obviously i'm not qualified to speak on behalf of the markets and what they will or will not do, but just my own judgment based upon all the various kinds of conversations that are occurring, are that we will find a way to deal with this issue. we do know that the root cause of our debt and deficit problem is spending is just too high. we also want economic growth. we don't want to embrace policies that we sincerely believe will damage the economy and hurt job creation. if you do that, then you lose even more revenues. so what we want to do is get a downpayment on our deficit and debt by getting spending cuts. i think that there are constructive conversations that are occurring both sides of the rotund rotunda, both sides of pennsylvania avenue. i do believe cooler heads will prevail. >>> what are the constructive convsations? for instance, are some elements of the gang of six proposal, i know you said it's not specific enough, it doesn't go adequately to slowing the growth of health spending, but are there constructive cuts proposed so far that

with the debt ceiling being raised, no real big agreement on spending and taxes. all that's left now is about a week of political posturing. plus what would happen politically if no deal was reached and the u.s. does default? would voters blame the president for a faltering economy or hold republicans responsible for refusing to make a deal? the answer to that could determine who wins the 2012 election. also, let's go to the videotape. michelle bachmann's husband denying that he ever referred to gays as barbarians, despite the tape that indicates differently, referring to gays as barbarians. we have the full tape on that, and that tops our 2012 coverage tonight. and the drip, drip, drip of the rupert murdoch scandal continues. first, rebecca brooks, the head of newspaper operations on the other side of the pond resigned. and late this afternoon, we learned the ceo of dow jones, which publishes murdoch's "the wall street journal" here in america is stepping down. can murdoch himself stop the scandal completely overwhelming his empire? findly, kumar, as in harold and kumar, is leaving the white

mean, it ain't $4.7 trillion. you know how big this is? this is bigger than the health care bill and the stimulus package two times over. this is the largest can cut that's ever been proposed by any president in the history of the united states. and boehner turned it down. now, you tell me, do you think they really want to do a deal? now, this ship has left the harbor. but at a time, this is where the president was ready to go. and to visualize that and what it means to the american people is amazing. and what does boehner do? he comes back on national television and says that it's president obama who is creating the crisis atmosphere. >> obviously, i expect that bill can and will pass the senate and be sent to the president for a signature. and if the president signs it, the crisis atmosphere that he has created will simply disappear. >> let's see. i've never written one of these before. four -- how do you do that? do you just put a point there or do you do that? i've never written one this big. four point seven trillion and zero dollars, right? they turned that down. nancy pelo

the possibility of doing something bigger. >> look, here's where things stand. there are three different big deals out there. number one is what the president and speaker boehner and eric cantor are negotiating, which is, yes, a big deal that is separate from anything the gang of six in the senate is working on. and then of course there's mcconnell-reid. one thing that's going on in the last 24 to 48 hours, is any deal that's mcconnell-reid that includes this idea of sort of the disapproval vote, giving the president more power to raise the debt ceiling, that thing has grown to the point of almost being toxic with some house republicans. in fact, they hate it so much, they may prefer to negotiate with the president directly. but for the white house, getting the 217 means making a deal acceptable to at least some of those houses with 87 new members. the man who's made himself their standard bearer, majority leader eric cantor put it this way. >> one-third of the republican conference and one-quarter of the entire house of representatives are freshmen, they're new. many of them have never served in

a long way. there's a big difference between requiring higher co-payments for a wealthy medicare recipients than saying everybody in medicare will pay $6500 more, which is the ryan plan. but president went that distance. and i think boehner went back it his caucus. he couldn't get the support. and so the speaker has now become a mouth piece for the tea party. and you're right and dana's right, i think in the end there has to be a deal, maybe there won't be, there has to be a deal, but it will come at the very last second. >> president may have said, let me throw it all on the table. let me rising everything. let me, as he said, show tough leadership. and they still wouldn't do it and maybe it was a chess move to show no matter what, this is about trying to bring a president down than to lift a nation up. could that have been the strategy, dana? >> you know, well, look, the president did give -- how much more could he have done? he gave the republicans everything they were looking for with the exception of saying, hey, come on, give me some face-saving gesture here. give me someth

with political philosophy in the house. as the debt line approaches and house republicans are going to have a big choice -- they picked this fight with the president for a reason, the debt limit is not going to be raised unless we do something on the deficit projections now and in to the future. but the problem with the house republicans is, they never answered affirmatively in a politically sa political politically saliable way what the a the answer should be. you have to have a plan that can pass both chambers and the president can sign. otherwise, you're talking past the other party. >> the question is, nicole, what is republican position right now? at the end of last week, we had republican leaders on in the house, guys i like very much personally. been a champion of paul ryan. back from the time i met him, in 1994. but we ask, what do you want? and their position was, it's not enough to close the tax loopholes. we've got to cut tax rates, income tax rates for individuals and corporations. that's not going to happen in 2011. they know it's not going to happen. i say, okay, let's say you got t

cuts and big structural change but something smaller more likely to help the country limp bat of the deadline and then maybe start talks for a broerd change for social programs and the tax base. but this is a dire circumstance because there is so much hope about the cooperation between the speaker,er ek cantor and the president, and geithner. a serious impasse. the president will be able to tell us more when he comes to the microphone. i was told the president received a phone call within the last half hour or so and hill leaders just hearing about it today as well. and a lengthy letter going out to house colleagues saying there was never a deal, it was never close and they are breaking this off. >> this could also be speaker boehner feeling the pressure of the tea party. >> certainly. >> -- caucus in the house. and clearly if he is saying that gang of six proposal, we certainly haven't confirmed it, this could be him having to bow to pressure in his own caucus from some of tea party freshmen and the like. >> everybody move could be looked at through a political lens. this cou
